and illegal and immoral, it is doing something that the iranians need to do anyway. they supply their clients and lebanon through syria. they have faith in the survival of the syrran government there. they need to do this on their own. why give them something for it? >> the growth of isis reflects poorer on america. he probably does not have any ambitions. isis has all global ambitions. everyone in the world has a point to our failed leadership.

11:13 am
activity, we have the capacity to continually improve how we deliver services to the american people. -@part of what has happened over several decades is that people sometimes feel as if the federal government is distant and it is not customer friendly. too much democracy. because of the defining work of many members of his cabinet, what we have been able to do is start chipping away attthe old ways of doing business. we make sure that people are getting the help that they need. ww got a chance to welcome a conversation with ur new secretary of veterans affairs. he is coming from the private sector. an extraordinary legacy of service and our forces. what we are already seeing is
11:14 am
that bob is able to start skimming down the wait times for people in terms of getting them an appointment that they need. we produced almost 30%. and a loo of that is not by virtual new legislatiin. it is by focusing on these new problems and managing them better. continue listening to the american people and seeing how we can be more helpful. there are a lot of opportunities to do that here today. i have taken inveetory of the progress being made in various departments. there is still immediate work that needs to be done. we have made progress in building the public health infrastructure that we need.

11:17 am
charles: let meethrow out a couple of possible deals that could happen. if i am president obama, i say, i have just mentioned chiidhood education. i will let you bring back a lot of cash from overseas at a 10% rate. we will take 3% of that and put it towards infrastructure funds. give me 2% for childhood education. it seems like he is trying to make something work. >> did you hear any admission that he was wrong or that his policies did not work? it is all about him all of the time.

feel fun. charles: the bottom line is i call what we have had so far back toward prosperity. a lot of people lost their house instead of a $2,000 a month mortgage payment payingg$1,500 a -pmonth in rent and then take i to not mall, with gasoline. wages. it is all about wages. how do we get wage growth? i would thinkkthe case has been mmde that you cannt get it with the policies that were in place. >> i was agreeing with you but then you turned it into politics. charles: we are talking -- we are talking policy. >> 95% of what happens in the economy has nothing to do with here, wages are growing only a little bit more than inflation. they are ot going down. charles: going ddwn versus inflation, cheeee prices and
12:09 pm
meat prices. help me out here. maybe there's a glimmer of hope out there. >> there is a glimmer of hope but the next 12 months are going to look lot like what the last several years have looked like which is if you look ver a longer period there has been progress but if progress isn't that fast that anyone will say this feels like a great boon, if times when politicians have been willing to standdup and say there will be unadulterated i think this is a great boom are either at the peak of the internet bubble in the late 90s or in the year 1984 when the gdp was growing 6%, 7% year. i don't think it is usual. you say we have only good news.
12:10 pm
charles: we know the american public is expecting mooe and we can grow the economy better than we have so far. thankssa lot. >> great to see you again. charles: president obama wrote a secret letter to iran's leaddr last month pointing out with nina pham shared interest in figgting isis but any cooperation between the two nations would hinge upon reaching a deal on iran's nuclear program and gave a deadline of nov. 24th. the founder of the american islamic forum for democracy and author of a battle for the soul of islam joins us now. good to have you here again. what do you make of this ttctic of communication between the president and the ayatollah? >> i can't believe it. as somebody dedicated to american security anddhomeland security i can't believe we would send a letter that ells them when we are battling isis we don't want to undermine iran. basically it is telling one of
12:11 pm
the biggest threats to global security and spread the government that sprrads terror that you can have your relationship with syria, you can allow the genoccial tyrant to do what he wants and use chemical weapons and iraq, we have no intention of preoccupying iraq, the letter said, it s so naive, it doesn't understand the way chest from pairs of the islamist tyrants work. they see this as a green light to do whaa they want and you % wonder why america is no longer relevant? this makes nashville chairman -- neville chamberlain look-alike jayhawk. charles: it suggest the president knowsshe boxed himself in with this pledge of no. on the ground, there has to be some. frommsomeone and everyone we trained so far fell miseraaly so maybe it is taking iranian boots. has he balked himself in with these pledges? >> hhw fortifying is that, our
12:12 pm
enemies suit and thee are fuelling through the iranian republican guard, a genocide of killing hundreds of thousands displaced millions in syria that somehow our only problem is with out of the so-called civil war which is a regional conflict. and theethe city governments will -- it is still bizarre, how to articulate what fools we look to the world with this kind of communication. charless a lot of americans feel we are in a no-win situation no matter what. we get rid of isis and help someone like the assad. he has no global ambitions, he is happy with his swath of pyria, but how does this every get resolled and what will be the role of america?

12:27 pm
president obama however, eeds to change especially given the results with republicans winning practically all the races they targeted realistically from capturing the u.s. sennte. as for the president, what he had to say before this meeting, general promises to continue working together. >> a significant midterm election. as i said at the press and will continue to be that good ideas don't necessarily come from just one party and i look forward to seeing the leaders of both democratic and republican caucuses this afternoon. a chance to share with them what i think we need to be doing to build the economic momentum we already have. >> white house and republicans identified corporate tax reform and expanding free trade as two agenda items where they could work together but there's a lot entailed on corporate tax reform
12:28 pm
that would need to be worked out there. as far as budding heads on issues, they could tow the same lines they did before the election especially on immigration reform with the president and white house stressing they want to vote in the house on the immigration bill land without it theyywould continue to move forward on a reguuation or executive action, not regulation, executive action from the white house, something republicans say would poison the well politically on immigration and ther reaches going forward. charles: thank you very much. up next, the story everybody is talking about. the 4-year-old daughter of the cincinnati defensive tackle, she got a chance to see her dad play for the first time last night and the reception from ffns and players will make your heart melt. all the details on ttat one after the break.

12:35 pm
battle, the quarterback at the browned on the opposing team came over and shook still's hhnd and they spoke and said afterwards he was proud of him. this is a cool story. i would eat at a skeptic be cynical about it. charles: the fact is there are -pso many beautiful stories in e nfl and sports in general that don't get publicized. >> part of my job is to find those tories and bring out the later part of sports in the beginning side. 90% of guys who come across in sports are good guys with great stories who have overcome a ton to get to where they are today. is a shame the american public looks at these guys and a live look said the negaaive. charles: england adding more nfl games, they understand what real football is. stuart called the patriots -- >> these fans they eat it up, 85,000 people in the stands,
12:36 pm
people come to watch and the nfl likes it. if you know anything about the nfl the bottom line is always important if they get to a new market and attract a new group of fans they will do so with ttree more games, the first decision game which is a bbg deal in nfl history being played internationally the jets will play the dolphins n london, jets fans, might not be crazy about it but fans overseas, they are. charles: i think is exciting. >> the next franchise would be london. >> london or l a, interesting debate. if you want to go overseas the back to where you had a bunch of football. >> you don't get taxed in london, you don't want to get taxed like guys don't play in toronto. >> the other e. schumer is they don't know if they will live in weekend and make a eight hour trip from the east coast? charles: got to liz in new york or london. >> they are not flying --
12:37 pm
charles: they will get a repatriation overs there. >> we could do it. pt before we call them the delusional democrat saying president obama is not getting credit. lower unemployment, falling gas prices, the market is up big time. we happen to deal with facts on "varney and company". here to tell us what the democrats got a shellacking in the midteem is an ecooomist at tp i.t.. can you explain to the democrats what they are missinn but the general public said loud and clear on tuesday? >> of voters said they don't think the economy is doing very well ended you look at today's economic report, llbor market report you actually understand why that is true. we see very little wage growth and what we have also seen is a very low -- what is known as the employment population ratio, he share of the population that is employed is below where it was
12:38 pm
before the recession, so the problem here is i think it is important to understand what the voters have said. what thh voters have ssid is that there is still problems in the economy and the labour market. you said democrats, this is a message for the democrats and the republicans that is important to take steps to keep healing the economy or lse we have a big problemm charles: perhaps it was a message to both parties but there was one in power and won their really took the big hit. this is what concerns -- what concerns a lot of our viewers, so far post election even today president obama talked about customer service and a review of government. is a rebuke of specific policies >> what it is a rebuke of is the believe that things are okay. we can fight about what the
12:39 pm
right policy is. we can discuss what needs to be done but it is important for the democrats and the republicans to accept there is fundamental problem here that needs to be moved forward. there are problems in the labour market. the labor market report has a low unemployment rate but we know we haae friends, all of us who are having trouble in the labour market, we know college grads coming gawker still having problems. we look here, democrats republicansscome together and identify those policies that can move things forward. charles: tell us what you think those policies are. every single politician says all the time, what do you think those solutions are? >> i will tell you what we proposed. we propose regulatory improveme.
12:40 pm
strip the barnacles off the bottom of the ship, clearing regulation, improvinn regulation, this is something republicans and democrats can agree on, can boost job growth and creation of new businesses lose the bills are there, there is bipartisan support. it is something everybody can % agree on right now to move forward either in the lame-duck session or after words of the fact is quite a few policies, what happens is washington focuses on places wheee there are differences rather than overlap. -pcharles: no one would argue f fewer regulations. maybe that is the lowest hanging fruit. millennials get a real bad rap, painted as lazy and the intitled generation but we have one up next, a young person who is breaking that mold, working hard, doing a lot of things that he will be here on set to tell his story after this. how ulswis
